Volume 457: debated on Wednesday 7 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government pursuant to the answer of 24 January 2007, Official Report, column 1894W, on EU Directive 2002/91/EC, whether her Department holds a copy of a European (a) Commission and (b) Parliament Impact Assessment. (124482)

A summary of the overall benefits expected to arise from member states’ implementation of EU Directive 2002/91/EC was published by the European Commission in April 2003. We are not aware that the European Commission or European Parliament has published any further impact assessments.

We have already published our own Regulatory Impact Assessment for implementing the technical parts of this directive in the April 2006 amendment of the building regulations and will be publishing an impact assessment for the remaining parts of the directive in due course.
